I have Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and installed GTA IV to it but there is no "savegame" folder at all and I've tried to find it and can not. Some how my games are saving but I cant find the folder itself. I've tried showing all folders (including hidden), and when I go to User/Documents/RockstarGames/GTA IV there is no savegame folder, nothing that looks to be like any save game folder at all. Some how my game is saving and I would just like to know where it is going too.

That's because the saves are in /user/AppData/Local/Rockstar Games. XLive is the the Microsoft folder in the some place.

The location of the save game files for all operating systems can be found in the faq :-


You may need to go into folder opens and select show hidden files/folders.

Hi ,
Just a moment ago i was all over the internet trying to find that magical location of the user files or " Savegame folder" on windows 7 where it seems like the game is reading its files from nowhere .... back in windows xp i had no problems at all the folder was very obvious in the documents folder

ANYHO ..... there was no place on the internet that had this information so i decided to make my own research and try some stuff ....

and AT LAST i found the location .... its .... its ....... biggrin.gif

in the same folder as the game itself suicidal.gif lol ... inside the folder "data" there you will find your "gta_sa.set" for the settings and the other files like "GTASAsf1.b" and "GTASAsf2.b" for the save game slots ....

Thanks ... hope i helped

Well, besides the fact that the topic is 3 years old tounge.gif, the saves are actually stored in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames. If you're using XLiveless or such, you'll find them in Documents\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames. icon14.gif
